Raymond Chandler and His Wife Cissy Are Finally Reunited

The late, great crime writer Raymond Chandler has finally been reunited with his wife Cissy, Diane Bell reports in The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Cissy Chandler's remains, held in a mausoleum for 57 years, was laid with her husband in a ceremony in San Diego. A good number of Raymond Chandler fans were attendance, including actor Powers Booth, who portrayed Chandler's iconic character Philip Marlowe in a series on HBO in the 1980s.

Below is a DVD cover of Powers Booth's HBO series Philip Marlowe, Private Eye, and the bottom photo shows some of the actors who portrayed Philip Marlowe in films and on TV. (My personal favorite is James Garner, who appeared in the 1969 film Marlowe).
